PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pleasantville Volunteer Fire Department and Volunteer Ambulance Corps will host an emergency summer blood drive -- and you could be headed to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium if you participate.
The drive will take place at the Pleasantville Fire House on Aug. 21 from 2:30 to 8:30 p.m.
All donors will be entered into a raffle to receive two tickets to the 2014 Super Bowl.
Because of the difficulty to organize summer blood drives, donors from towns all over Westchester County are invited to participate.
"Blood donations fall off dramatically during the summer when vacations and travel occupy more of everyone’s time," the Pleasantville Fire Department said in a statement. "The need for blood, however, does not decline and supplies rapidly dwindle."
For information, to sign up or to volunteer, call 914- 747-2408 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although it is helpful to let the organizers know in advance that you plan to come, walk-ins are always accepted.
